Using the Law of Attraction to Manifest Your Ideal Life: Step 3 – Clear All Negative or Limiting Beliefs

3. Clear all negative or limiting beliefs

This is vital because it is your limiting beliefs that control the results in your life. The challenge is to identify your limiting beliefs because many people are not even aware that they exist, far less be in a position to give name to them.

Some people's negative beliefs are as follows:

~I don't deserve to be rich
~I get sick easily
~I always seem to attract the wrong men
~I'm not good enough…
~I'm not clever enough…
~Money is hard to come by
~I'm not good at selling

Do any of these statements resonate with you? Have you noticed anything about these statements? They represent typical thoughts. In other words, our negative or limiting beliefs are connected to our thoughts. So one way to identify what your negative or limiting beliefs are is to tune into your thoughts and your talk. Yes, listening to your unspoken and spoken words will give you vital clues as to why you are creating your current reality.

"Your words (spoken and unspoken) create your reality."

If where you are is where you want to be – fine. However, if you are not getting the results you desire then you need to alter your self-image because your self-image is your controlling force and you will never grow beyond the limits of your self-image. Do you have a winner's image or a loser's image? Fortunately, any limits which do exist are generally self-imposed.

"An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behaviour: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life."
Dr Joyce Brothers

For instance, I was once at a seminar and one of the participants asked a question. She identified herself as a NLP practitioner and then went on to say that because she was caned as a child she had a learning disability. So her belief is that her learning disability was caused by the fact she was caned. Now, there is nothing she can do about the latter. It happened. And so as long as she holds onto this negative belief she will always have a learning disability. Can you see how powerful your words are? Claiming responsibility for her learning disability is a vital first step if this woman wants to overcome this challenge.

The thing is that unless you train yourself to listen to your language you will miss these vital clues that are literally sabotaging your life. This is just one way where a coach is very helpful. We are equipped with a variety of tools and strategies to help you overcome your limiting beliefs. We are also trained to listen to what you say with the utmost attention so that we can pick up on these saboteurs and help you to create an internal and external dialogue that will enrich rather than impoverish your life.

Another way to identify your limiting beliefs is to take an example of something you desire. Perhaps you have wanted to buy a new house or take a special trip and you haven't done so as yet. Examine your feelings when you think about these goals. "I want to buy a new house but…" Whatever comes up after the 'but' is your negative belief about this particular goal.

Your current circumstances have no bearing on what you can ultimately achieve. Many of the big achievers in life started out with nothing. You can successfully apply the Law of Attraction to manifest what you want in life. Just as you created your current reality you can create a new reality, one that is in harmony with your inner-self – your true spirit.

"Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs."
Dr Maxwell Maltz
